Queens Cancer Center is committed to providing high-quality care to all patients, including immigrants and other medically underserved people with cancer.
In 2005, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Queens Cancer Center established the Queens Cancer Center Primary Care Survivors Clinic, which provides follow-up care to cancer survivors who do not have a primary care physician. Each year, this clinic accommodates more than 1,000 patient visits.
Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service and Survivorship Initiative are working with Queens Cancer Center to assess the clinic’s ability to help cancer survivors manage a variety of medical conditions. This evaluation will help guide the development and delivery of healthcare for survivors, and could offer a model of care for other city public hospital systems.
